Storyline

In a not too far future, Steve Battier, a multimillionaire elderly and terminally ill, accepting the offer of a company - RPG - that in return for a high monetary value provides to a very restricted group of clients the possibility to become young again. During 10 hours, 10 millionaires around the world, men and women with fame and power, will be transferred to younger bodies, attractive and healthy to live in a temporary rejuvenation game, very real thrills, where in that every hour someone will die. In the body of a man of 23 years, returning to enjoy the pleasures of sex and experiencing the adrenaline of violence and power over life and death, Steve is willing to do anything to keep young forever... But not always what we have experienced is what appears to be. Written by mgnfilmes

Wasted opportunity
18 July 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was willing to get past the thought that it's one more "Survivor"/"Hunger Games" concept ripoff and was curious to see if they managed to do something different. The beginning was promising but then it quickly descended into cardboard cutout characters and not much action either.

I understand that this was a low budget production so they couldn't have much in terms of the SFX and action scenes but they could have made a great ensemble piece if they spent a lot more times thinking while writing, coming up with character developments and then treating it almost like a theatrical play with a lot of rehearsals. That's how a low budget production can compensate for the lack of expensive effects and fight choreographies - by taking the time to write much better script and rehearse actors to perfection.

Instead they pinched bits and pieces from different aspects available to this kind of movie and ended up with nothing. Even "romance & sex" scenes were unconvincing.
